Hi and welcome to the Readers’ Café – a place to gather and to share.

Personally, I have had enough of the cold, wet and dreariness of winter. I’ve decided to treat everyone to enjoy some fun in the sun! Today we’re soaking up some warmth (with appropriate sunscreen, of course) on the beach at Hanauma Bay on Oahu in Hawaii.

Please help yourself to a cool beverage of your choice. Then spread out a beach towel, sit back, and soak in the sights and sounds. Join in the conversation by posting comments below. We’re a friendly bunch; no need to be shy.

Hit your internet browser’s REFRESH button to see new comments as others join in the conversation. All that I ask is that you respect others and keep it relatively family-friendly. Also, keep in mind that this is a public space, so share what you feel comfortable sharing publicly.

Today’s conversation starter:

  • If you could be anywhere doing anything in this moment, where would you be and why?
  • What is your wildest daydream (that you can share publicly)?
  • Have any of your daydreams ever come true?

Aloha!

Celebrating a Special Birthday at Readers’ Cafe

Hi and welcome to the Readers’ Café – a place to gather and to share. Today I invite you into my home for a special, extended Readers’ Café so that readers in far away lands may join us.

Today we celebrate a birthday of sorts: my baby, my book I’ll Do It Myself is one year old. Exactly one year ago today, my thirty years of dreaming, planning researching and writing became reality when seven boxes of books were delivered. Opening that first box and laying my eyes and hands upon what I had created, I can only imagine that is what giving birth is like.

This past year’s journey with the book has been awesome! Copies have been mailed to readers across Canada and the United States, and to Britain, New Zealand, Australia and even Chile! Copies are also available from Celebration Christian Store and Black Bond Books, another childhood dream come true. Meeting people along the way on two successful virtual book tours, plus two book signings in Las Vegas – I am truly amazed and am sincerely grateful. Thank you.

Please help yourself to food and a beverage of your choice and make yourself comfortable. Then sit back, relax and join in the conversation by posting comments below. Feel free to ask questions about I’ll Do It Myself, share your favourite passage or to mingle with fellow readers. Don’t be shy.
